Cofresi Beach

by Grootpiet about Hacienda Resort

We stayed at the Hacienda Resort, and more specifically the Hacienda Garden, 20 mins. from the airport on Cofresi Beach.

The resort shares the beach with Sun Villas, and it's also open to the public.

Four types of accomodation offered: Garden, Suites, Tropical & Villas del Mar, at escalating cost. Our garden room was essentially bungalow-style accomodation with King bed, tv, shower etc. Also a nice little patio with french doors.

Maintenance & upkeep was ok...

Restaurants to choose from:
Garden: nice for breakfast
Beach bar: good for lunch
Italian: very good, need to book
Chinese: Didn't go, too close to noisy bar
Blue Marlin: Excellent, need to pay extra

Taxi's from the airport

by Grootpiet

Fixed taxi rates are listed on a big sign just outside the airport terminal. Return rates are also shown, and should be about a $10 or more discount vs. seperate bookings.

Single from the airport to Cofresi beach was about $25, and return $40 excluding tip.

Watch out for the guys who try and show you where the taxi's are, they also expect some money.

Ocean World

by Jim_Eliason

Ocean World is an aquarium on Cofresi Beach that specializes in animal shows and "swim with encounters" (at an extra very expensive charge) with animals. The overall displays are nice and one really neat feature is a reef exhibit snorkel tank wherein you can snorkel with reef fish which is included in the basic admission. I got free tickets from my hotel, normally admission is $50 which is kind of steep for what you get. It's a nice facility but only has half the displays of a Sea World. Beyond that, it's a nice place to spend 3-4 hours.

We were at Cofresi Beach (hotel was EMI Sun Village_.) We took a car ride to Playa Dorada and it was about a 25 minute drive.

Hey, ask a question on this website. Go to bulletin boards. They probably have any DR question you want. They also have hotel reviews, Dominican tips and so much more. If you want to email with questions about general DR, go ahead.
But this bulletin board on this web page is great.
Go to: http:// www.debbiesdominicantravels.com

Go to North coast under the bullet board section and read back question. If you post question,they answer within day usually.
But ask me in email if have anything more. I will try to help. I just got back from Cofresi beach in October.
